Actually, to be clear, the Ourmedia material does _NOT_ appear in the Archive's Open-Source Movies section. It's accessible via this screen:

http://www.archive.org/details/ourmedia

So you can, at least, tell which items have been Archive-curated and which Ourmedia-curated. But hopefully we can work to resolve this at some point. Ourmedia items will show up on site searches, obviously.

[And yes, Ourmedia curators can remove Ourmedia items from their section of the Archive site. One of the reasons that Archive admins don't do it, even if we have time, is that Ourmedia has item 'nodes' that also need removing/affecting, and Archive admins don't have access to these.]

Oh, they don't? Didn't they at one point go there? How do you navigate to that page, I can't seem to see it under Moving Images anywhere?

so the ourmedia stuff, when video-related,
lists "mediatype == MovingImage" (dublin core type)

whereas the non-ourmedia stuff, when video-related,
lists "mediatype == movies".

so only items with "movies" mediatype end up anywhere in the "www.archive.org/details/movies"
parts of our website.

the ourmedia stuff has to be found via the search engine, or the details/ourmedia page listed in a prior parent post.

Oh Simon, here's a related problem then: if we stumble over an item here (which is probably how most of us do), how do we find the ourmedia *node* that needs to be reported there?

So far I've been guessing a keyword and searching over there, but for instance in this likely copyright violation to check into:
http://www.archive.org/details/Signs
the keywords I might pick are too broad.

Good question. You just have to report it using the Archive name, and get those guys to work out the node, I guess?

Simon's correct. We've generally been able to find the item on our site if we know the IA identifier.
